A great big thank you goes out to you all for your kindness, patience, caring and nursing care you gave to our dear sister.


When visiting, there is always a warm family feeling, which I am sure is felt by the residents.


Thank you all for your excellent care of our dear friend. It was so good to know he was in such good hands whilst he was going through such an awful illness.


Can’t fault the staff – absolutely brilliant. The new activities and Kathy the event’s organiser is great. My mum is really happy – Long may it last!


Ash Croft House Nursing Home

Welcome to true care for elderly residents in Formby, Merseyside.

It’s the little things that make Ash Croft House Nursing Home a true home away from home. We’ve combined a comfortable environment conducive to improving quality of life, with tasteful interiors in a beautifully preserved Victorian property.

Communal areas are where our residents put their feet up. Here they also have the opportunity to join in social activities. Dedicated staff are always on hand to guide and assist with individual needs.

Based in Formby, Merseyside, Ash Croft House has 30 bedrooms boasting tasteful décor and high standard furnishings.

With age, we all grow more attached to the familiar comforts and security of our homes. That’s why at Ash Croft House, we do everything we can to provide all those home comforts, and that same sense of security.

Wellbeing & Purpose

Each resident has a life book, drawn up when they first arrive at Ash Croft House. Life Books keep us aware of a resident’s existing hobbies, skills, and interests. They also guide carers when introducing residents to something new. Find out More

At Ash Croft House, we believe that every individual has his/her own story to tell. We make it our business to get to know the people we care for by spending time with them. Remembering past achievements, and the good old days, often help maintain a sense of self and fulfilment.

Family visits and family involvement are vital to the wellbeing of our residents. That’s why we aim to provide an environment that’s comfortable and invigorating for both residents and their visitors. Our planned activities and events are key opportunities for family participation and support. They also wellbeing and purpose among our residents. All activities are optional.

Personal Space & Personalised Care

Familiarity and reminiscence is invaluable. It keeps us connected with life; can ease the transition into care; and is helpful in improving memory skills. At Ash Croft House, all our residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with small belongings and photographs. This makes a world of difference and encourages a sense of belonging.

We offer several types of care depending on the level of support required: Nursing Care, Residential Care, Convalescent Care, Post-operative Care and End of Life Care. Each resident receives personalised support in accordance with his/her individual care plan, under the supervision of the dedicated home manager.

In order to maintain our exceptional level of service, we actively seek feedback. It helps us offer the highest quality support and care, tailored to the needs of our individual residents.


Hearty, home cooking really makes a house a home. Our chef creates a wide range of balanced, nutritious meals. These are prepared daily and in accordance with residents’ dietary requirements. Each day presents varied menu options, allowing a choice of seasonal hot and cold dishes. Popular choices are roast dinners, fish & chips and traditional puddings.
